Here are some more of my Sandown Pics. The pics are of patchwork, wools, sewing machines, yarns, button, beads, knitted garments and ribbons. I was so busy taking photographs that I bought very little. The majority of the show seemed to be devoted to cardmaking and stamping, (which I am not too interested in myself), and these stands were so crowded that it was almost impossible to take pics of them proving that it is obviously a craft of huge interest to many people
As you can see I am a little preoccupied with new sewing machines at present and fell in love with this large lovely (The Janome Horizon - £1750 reduced to £1350) Ahh!! I wish. Angie from Angie Quilts suggested that I needed a new Bernina Series 5 but the Woking Sewing Machine Company was scathing about them - it is so difficult to find objective advice. The majority of machines now seem to be built in the far east and this puts many sellers off - love some advice ... anyone?
As you can see the show was pretty large and very crowded so at this point we stopped for coffee. More later ...
